|Grace Loney, Visual Artist, Art Waves #169|
Abstract artist Grace Loney says she wants to give those who view her art the same experience listeners have when a piece of music surrounds and totally engages them. She also says everyone, of any age, should give themselves permission to stop over thinking it and embrace their creativity. We couldn't get David Wilcox's O Freedom for the ending, so we played her second choice: Anthem by Leonard Cohen.
